Leica Geosystems Announces New Leica Cyclone II TOPO Software
Unlike other point cloud software, Leica Cyclone II TOPO features a map-like, top-down user interface as the primary work area - an interface very familiar to standard CAD techs. This top-down interface is supplemented with a breakthrough capability that automatically generates associated cross-section and isometric views of the same map area. For optimal analysis, all views can be arrayed simultaneously on a single display. Moreover, each Intelligent-2D-Section View™ automatically shows the area of greatest topographic interest and the best section view orientation. Together, these automated views let CAD techs quickly navigate point cloud data to accurately locate topographic features.
Cyclone II TOPO applies standard methods for survey coding and for line & arc creation from High-Definition Survey scan data. Survey code lists and survey control data can be directly imported; direct export to survey CAD applications lets CAD techs create final maps using the same office workflows used with conventional survey methods.
